As life becomes increasingly mobile, we often find ourselves consuming more and more news on-the-go. Podcasts are new for many a preferred medium to listen to news and stories about topics they care about. However, until recently the selection of podcasts focusing on environmental issues has been rather narrow.
In 2016, Mongabay, a popular site for environmental news, launched a new podcast series called “Mongabay Newscast”. This podcast covers a range of environmental topics in the past, such as CITES, climate change, forest ecosystem health and hydropower.
Interesting for experts involved in forestry planning may be their monitoring and remote sensing-related episodes, the latest being an episode where discuss the cutting-edge remote sensing technologies used to monitor ecosystems like rainforests and coral reefs called “New eyes in the sky monitor Earth systems like never before”.
If you are interested in listening to the Mongabay Newscast, you can subscribe via the different providers like iTunes, listen directly on their website or download the episodes on your device.
